There is a time of rejoicing for Men of Standard fans across the country. Men Of Standard’s Bryan J. Pierce has finally done it, releasing Glory Live, his debut solo project on August 3rd. The eight song disc does an amazing job of capturing Pierce in his element, offering a variety of styles including worship and praise, traditional and contemporary Gospel. For Pierce, it was a matter of finding the right time. Ministering on a weekly basis as teaching minister and Senior Pastor of the Mount Zion Baptist Church in Greensboro, NC, Pierce was content doing what he does each Sunday. It wasn’t until a conversation with Grammy winner and prominent worship leader Tasha Cobbs Leonard changed his perspective. “Tasha asked the same question, but she admonished me that it was time to release this sound in the kingdom”, Pierce says. “I followed that conversation with prayer and after receiving marching orders, we were ready to go, and that in itself was the answer to the call to release the sounds of Zion and experience the Glory of God in earth as it is in Heaven”.
Recorded live before a capacity crowd at the Mount Zion Baptist Church in Greensboro, NC, Glory captures the inimitable sounds of Bryan J Pierce in worship, featuring production from Tasha Cobbs Leonard and Kenneth Leonard. Pierce is not alone in this journey, he assembles a cadre of support making it a family affair as wife Debra joins him on the rousing New Orleans flavored church rocker Joy and daughter Bryana serves a co-writer on Glory. Not to be outdone, fellow Men of Standard members Issac Caree and Lowell Pye lend their distinctive voices to the project as Pierce covers the Todd Dulaney composition Listen and a not to be missed tribute to Quartet piece entitled He’s Able.
The first single from the CD heads to radio this week as Pierce finalizes plans for promotional events that includes radio interviews and ministry stops over the next couple of weeks
